CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BioHiTech Global, Inc. (OTCQB: BHTG), a green technology company that develops and deploys innovative and disruptive waste management technologies, today announced the launch of BHTG Smart Mode, a new technology for its Eco-Safe Digester® and Revolution Series™ Digester lines of on-site food waste disposal equipment. Smart Mode leverages cloud computing, machine learning, and the on-board internet-connected computer in the digester to intelligently drive the equipment in order to optimize performance and reduce servicing downtime.
"Smart Mode essentially makes our equipment much smarter," said Bill Kratzer, Chief Technology Officer of BioHiTech Global. "By harnessing the computing power and data in our cloud, we have created software that can more intelligently control our equipment to improve performance and make our units even more cost effective. Through this intelligent control system our machines can conserve more water and reduce energy usage, while improving the throughput and reliability of the equipment. This saves the customer money and has the potential to significantly reduce our servicing costs as we expand BioHiTech's global footprint in the coming years."
The Company has filed a provisional patent application for the new software and believes this technology can be utilized for intelligent control of many types of PLC-controlled industrial machines serving a wide variety of vertical markets beyond waste disposal. The software will be installed in all future deliveries of its Internet connected digesters and the Company expects to equip all currently supported internet-enabled units by the end of the current year.
Frank E. Celli, Chief Executive Officer added, "This technology is another example of how BioHiTech is leading the way in transforming the waste industry making it more efficient and environmentally friendly. We have been championing the usefulness of cloud computing, big data, and smart technology to transform our environmentally responsible waste management solution into a valuable supply chain management tool that helps reduce costs and improve the bottom line of our customers. Smart Mode is another significant step forward in positioning our Company as a technology leader in managing waste disposal efficiently and responsibly. "
